txtm8 – Using Text Services to Provide Advice and Information to Young People [VIDEO]

How can mobiles be used to provide advice and information to young people? Txtm8 – a free and confidential sex and relationships text service for young people in London, United Kingdom – is a good example. To use txtm8 all the young people have to do is text their question to 89868 and they’ll receive a free answer within 30 minutes. The text service is completely free and open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  All questions are answered by experienced advisers who are trained to give clear, confidential help and advice on any topic relating to sex, relationships and sexual health.
